The draw for Rounds 1 & 2 for The Conference Cup for the Bertie Joel Trophy 2019 were made today by CCC Director of Cricket, Simon Prodger, and the longest serving Director on the CCC Board, Charlie Puckett.
The draw is here on The Conference Cup page of our website.
40 clubs entered the competition this year, so 16 off were drawn for Round 1, and the 8 'winners' of Round 1 then joined the remaining 24 off, to make-up the 32 off in Round 2 (16 matches).
As usual there is a mixture of 'local derby's', and 'distance draws' to play a club you have never played before (a 'magical' aspect of an FA Cup type draw). Stanmore v Brentwood in Round 2 is probably the 'heavy-weight' draw.
